Since the first race back in 2010, more than 1,500,000 young people fought against modern-day slavery, and have raised more than HKD$ 4.5 Million for grassroots anti-slavery charities in the process. It’s an amazing cause to be a part of when you think about how so many people, especially young children are suffering in the fastest growing international crime in the world.
This year, our fundraising goal for the 24 Hour Race in Hong Kong is HKD 3 million. This is an extremely achievable goal if everyone of you reading this can donate - even a small amount can go a long way to combating human trafficking! 24 Hour Race (organized by Running To Stop the Traffik) is a non-profit organisation, all excess funds will be donated to our beneficiary charities through our charity partner to The Exodus Road and Right4Children.
This is a cause that we believe to be of the greatest importance; it is not only about combating one of the most devastating global issue, but it also goes to show that young people have the ability to make a change in the society. It would be amazing if you can support me in making a difference in other people’s lives by donating. Thank you for your generosity and contributions to a better future.
